sounds alright alothough those miles on a 4g63 kind of scare me... Why was the car painted? ( maybe crashed) Just go drive it and see how it drives.

Did he put bigger injectors in? What type of fuel pump is he running? Find out that info. Also 151k and no engine rebuild??? Unless over time it's been rebuilt then I wouldn't even think of paying $4900 for it. I bought my eclipse(95 GSX)
with 100k miles on it and it was basically bone stock aside from full coilovers and Motegi MR-7's. That was it. I'd seriously consider finding a different one. Good deal yes but for the number of miles I'd be prepared to rebuild that engine soon cause you know it's been beat on. Good luck.

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

Craigslist is where I found my dsm and I'm sure where many others found theirs at. You could try some dealers that may have a eclipse on there lot. In any case if your determined you'll find one. Good luck

Haha thats what I plan to do with this red 1G I seen down my block. Been sitting there for quite some time now and I wanna see if I can just take it off the ladies hands for free. Then do a rebuild on it.
